I’M A Celebrity’s Jamie Lynn Spears has finally broken her silence about her famous sister Britney.
The 32-year-old American actress didn’t mention her superstar sibling, 41, on the launch show last night, despite This Morning’s Josie Gibson asking.
But now she has addressed the elephant in the camp – and revealed to him that the two of them have a good relationship again.
Britney once accused her sister of telling “crazy lies” about her in the past, which is why Jamie Lynn’s words of praise came as a surprise to some.
First Dates’Wanting to learn more about his co-star’s upbringing, Sirieix interviewed her while she lounged in her hammock.
He asked, “Where do you live?”
Jamie Lynn replied: “I live in the country. We have about 180 hectares.”
Fred immediately asked the question everyone wanted and replied, “Wow, like a ranch?” Your sister is obviously a superstar, you’re a superstar, why? How come you two did it?”
Jamie Lynn replied: “I think every family fights and has their problems, but I spoke to her before I came here and we love each other.”
Fred clarified his question by saying, “But you both became so famous and so big…”

Jamie Lynn said: “Oh, I always say that. My mom, not at all arrogant, my mom literally believed we were the best in the world. I think we grew up just singing and dancing, that was our whole household, that’s how we were.
“We auditioned for a show called ‘All That’ and I was on ‘All That’ for three years before I did Zoey.” . It was very successful. After I was done with Zoey, I had the love of my life and thought I decided to keep the baby. I was 16. The whole world thought, ‘You’re an ass, you’re terrible, your life is over…'”
Fred asked, “Oh, really? You felt it?”
Jamie Lynn said: “Oh yeah. Because I got pregnant early and was on a children’s show.”
Fred asked, “Were your parents good to you?”
Jamie Lynn said: “Yes, it was busy. I just think they were sad that I was in that situation, but it’s also like your baby is having a baby. I had to hide for a long time because they were relentless.”
Jamie Lynn and her older sister Britney have had a strained relationship in recent years.

She also spoke publicly about her sister’s controversial conservatorship, appearing to criticize the #FreeBritney movement, which advocated for Britney to be able to make her own financial decisions.
